Ken Byron Ventures Burlier Morning Pipe

Burlier Morning Pipe is a hearty smoke for having with morning coffee featuring burley in multiple forms including blackened and bits of plug. It has notes of coffee, cream, and dark cocoa that work with the natural flavor of burley versus smothering it. It has more burley presence that the regular/original Burley Morning Pipe.

The various burleys provide a lot of earth, wood, nuts, light sugar, molasses and cocoa, light dry sourness, a couple of minute sharp notes, toast, and the slightest hint of a floral note. The coffee leads the other toppings. The lightly bitter dark cocoa is about a slot behind the coffee in terms of effect. The cream is very obvious and helps harmonize the toppings, which cohesively work with the burleys to create a very deep, rich, consistently savory, lightly rugged, mildly bitter sweet, creamy flavor from top to bottom. Though the toppings moderately sublimate the tobaccos, you can’t miss the intrinsically bold aspects of the burleys. The strength just misses the medium mark. The taste level is medium. The nic-hit is a couple of steps past the center of mild to medium. No chance of bite or harshness, but it does have a light rough edge at times. Burns cool and clean at a reasonable rate. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Has a pleasantly long lingering after taste, and room note. Due to the use of stronger burleys, it’s a little punchier, less sweeter, not quite as smooth version of Burley Morning Pipe, and is not an all day smoke. It is certainly repeatable, though, and a veteran smoker may well consider this to be an all day companion. Three and a half stars.

From the name, you might be expecting a Burley version of EMP but this goes in the opposite way of that famous English.

The bag note is cocoa/coffee forward like a mocha. The ribbons are combination of browns and blacks. The moisture content is fairly high, but it is smokeable without drying time. It takes a couple of lights to get get going well and a couple of relights depending on your smoking pace.

The taste is coffee forward, with some sweet creamy chocolate notes in the background. The tobaccos come through as a strong base with a dark bread taste a little like toast to me. The overall taste reminds me of coffee cake. The burleys in here carry a nice level of nicotine which sneaks up on me when I smoke it because its a little unexpected behind the aromatics.

It pairs great with coffee in the morning and could be an all day smoke for an aromatic lover. My wife likes the roomnote so it has also been one for me to smoke in the car on road-trips.

It reminds me quite a bit of one of my favorites, Corn Cob Pipe and a Button Nose from C&D
